Re: [CentOS] CentOS 7 + GNOME : all icon themes broken after update from CR

I did the update from CR, and have some pretty serious issues.  Until I blew away (by mv to a different name) the .local and .config directory trees, I couldn't log in to GNOME at all.  After doing that, I can log in, but if I do any actual work, GNOME crashes, and abrt-cli from root in vc 2 tells me that gnome-shell got a SIGSEGV. I figure all of the updates aren't in CR yet, so I'm going to pull out my backup machine and work with it until I see if CR gets more updates.  Good thing I've got vacation scheduled for next week!I did quite a few other things in trying to troubleshoot, including a

CentOS 7 + GNOME : all icon themes broken after update from CR

Hi,

I just upgraded one of my CentOS 7 + GNOME desktops from the CR repo.
After the upgrade, it seems like all of the icon themes are broken.
Missing icons everywhere.

Any idea what's going on here ?

NetworkManager and /etc/resolv.conf

CentOS 7.5 image running on linode.

unbound running on localhost.

Have to use a cron job once a minute to keep /etc/resolv.conf using the
localhost for name resolution - whenever NetworkManager gets restarted
(usually only a system boot) it gets over-written.

It seems every distro has a different way of preventing NetworkManager
from replacing that file.

I found instructions for Fedora that said create
/etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/no-dns.conf containing

[main]
dns=none

That doesn't seem to have any effect.

Poking around, I find a file on boot seems to be created called

Continuous Release (CR) Repository has been released for CentOS Linux 7.6.1810 for X86_64, i386, armhfp, aarch64, power9, ppc64le

We have pushed the CR repository for CentOS Linux 7.6.1810 for following
architectures:

x86_64
i386
armhfp
aarch64
power9
ppc64le

We are currently still working on the ppc64 / ppc architecture as we are
having issues with some of the 32bit ppc mulitlib builds.

CR is basically the packages that will update your install from CentOS
Linux 7.5.1804 to 7.6.1810, minus the centos-release rpm and the
anaconda rpms.  What we will do now is take these packages and create
the new install tree and install media, then test those and finally
release them as the official CentOS 7.6.1810 release.

sssd ldap_user_search_base filters with '#' characters in names

I'm trying to craft an ldap search filter for use with

The filter looks for users that are memberOf a particular group -
however, the group name start with a '#' character - i.e.

Centpkg and the converged git project

Hi Folks,

I've done a bit of work on centpkg, now that we have a testbed at

'date' format differences between CentOS 6 and 7 using the en_GB locale ?

Just noticed that the output of 'date' is different between CentOS 6 and
7 when using the 'en_GB' locale - e.g.:

CentOS 6:

% LANG=en_GB date
Thu Nov 15 11:42:46 GMT 2018
% LANG=en_US date
Thu Nov 15 11:42:56 GMT 2018

CentOS 7:

CentOS Dojo @ FOSDEM

We're delighted to announce the schedule, and registration, for the
upcoming CentOS Dojo in Brussels, on February 1, 2019, the day before
FOSDEM starts.

Details are here: <a href="https://wiki.centos.org/Events/Dojo/Brussels2019" title="https://wiki.centos.org/Events/Dojo/Brussels2019">https://wiki.centos.org/Events/Dojo/Brussels2019</a>

The schedule is still marked "Tentative" since I have not received
confirmation from all of the speakers yet, but we're almost there.

Registration is FREE, but we do ask that you register anyways, since it
helps us with venue planning and catering.

See you in Brussels!

merging signatures to a pdf file

Everyone,

I am working on a module with the use of pdktk that merges *.fdf data files with a *.pdf

off-topic question about RDP to Win-10

I have a win10 VM in virtualbox on my Linux (C7) desktop. I CAN connect
to it with rdesktop 1.8.3 (now rather old, but it's the latest release),
but cannot connect with remmina or krdc. Both of them just hang for a
while then say they can't connect.

Curiously, they all will connect to the win10 box in my office.

They don't show any other useful information, and I don't know where
to go to figure this out. Anyone out there have any ideas they can share?

thanks in advance!

touchpad problem

Hi all!

I have a new-to-me (i.e., used) laptop and am having a problem making
the touchpad behave.

It is an old HP Elitebook 8530p, and I THINK it has a synaptics
touchpad. But I don't remember how to get more specifics than that
on Linux, lspci, lsusb and lshw don't tell me anything helpful.
lsmod doesn't list anything containing "syn" or "synaptics".

Anyway, I've installed C7 on the laptop and pretty much everything
works just as I expect it to, but even though I configure the touchpad
for two-finger-scrolling, it simply won't do it.

Multiple grub2 Users with Passwords

Hello All,

I am trying to set multiple users with passwords for modifying grub2
menu entries at boot. I know I can set a "root" user grub2 password with
grub2-setpassword. I have also been able to make a grub2 user password
using the grub2-mkpasswd-pbkdf2 command and adding

    set superusers="user1"

to the /etc/grub.d/40_custom file. However, I have multiple user
administrators that will possibly need access to grub at boot (i.e. to
boot to single user mode to fix a broken configuration file).

Drop/Terminate data to/from source using firewalld rich rules

I need to be able to temporarily cut off the source of network slowdowns.

What I used to do:
Router with 2 x NICs running slackware 14.
Execute iptraf-ng, choose IP Network Monitor and sort by Byte Count.
The sorted screen always seemed a bit confusing but I could usually
pluck a couple of IP addresses with racing byte counts and cut all
traffic to them using an iptables rule.
Then if I wanted to identify the computer or device, I’d go into the
dhcpd.leases file and look for the ip address and the corresponding
device hostname.
It was a bit of a pain, but it worked.

Now:

CentOS 6: Logrotate / selinux problem

Ever since a recent power failure I have been getting a Logrotate error. My
machine is on a UPS -- it shutdown cleanly, but I suspect that its BIOS/RTC
battery is dead, since the machine came up thinking it was 1982 :-(. I reset
the clock and everything is fine, *except* I had to delete Logrotate's state
files (which had bad dates).

Evolution: always a 90-second delay

I'm trying to use Evolution on the latest CentOS 7.

Whenever I try to receive or send mail, there's always a 90-second
delay before the connection works. Since the delay is always exactly
90 seconds, I think I may be waiting for something to time out.

Perhaps this is a clue. My address is <a href="mailto: ... at example dot com"> ... at example dot com</a>. I have to log
in to pop.example.com or imap.example.com as user, not as
<a href="mailto: ... at example dot com"> ... at example dot com</a>. Evolution seems to always try to connect as
<a href="mailto: ... at pop dot example.com"> ... at pop dot example.com</a> or <a href="mailto: ... at imap dot example.com"> ... at imap dot example.com</a>. I can't get it to try
to connect as user.

last failed login...

Hi all!

I just (well, a few days ago) installed C7 on a new-to-me (used) laptop,
and notice something I've not noticed before, either on my personal
desktop, or other C7 machines I use:

every time I log in, it gives me a message something like "last failed
login <timestamp>", where the date and time it gives are RIGHT NOW, just
at the time I'm logging in (which succeeds).

Anybody know why that would be happening?

BTW, using the Mate desktop, but did not change the DM, so I think
it is still GDM.

Thanks in advance!

Load html file into elinks from desktop

With a html file on my (Mate) desktop I would like to be able to
right-click on it and select "open with" and have it load into elinks.

But I haven't yet figured out the magic command line that I need for
this to happen.

gnome-terminal --command="elinks %s"

That loads elinks but doesn't load the html file into it.

gnome-terminal --command="cat %s | elinks" doesn't work either.

where to download kernel-3.10.0-693.17.6.el7 and kernel-devel-3.10.0-693.17.6.el7

Hi,

Dear All,

I know it is an oxymoron: good free ... service ;-)

Still, can someone recommend good free email service?

I definitely will not go with google, Microsoft, Apple.

Are you going to devconf.cz?

If you're planning to attend devconf.cz, please let me know. If you'd be
willing to spend an hour at a CentOS booth/table, please indicate that, too.

A newbie question about searching an installed packet

Hi,

I’m french and literally one. So I’m not really easy with Sheakespeare language. So, accept my apologies.

As write in subject, I’m a newbie about CentOS an all RedHat declines. I wrote a Shell script for ours Debians (all sort of Debian like) which verify which packets are present before running. I thought I had found an equivalent with « yum list installed | grep <packet> » command but I have sometime alerts about a lock because an other instance of « yum » is running.

I don’t understand why a simple « yum list » impose that!

Desktop files change?

Hi,

Does anyone know if they changed the way that desktop files for apps work?

It seams that inside your start script you can no longer change your
scripts directory.

Does it now call some form of restricted shell?

Anyone know where you can track these changes?

Thanks

command in kickstart file to write disklabel?

Dear All,

At some point after release of CentOS 7 (though this thing might have
started before, it is just when _I_ noticed it) I discovered that if I
stick into machine drive without disk label, and then do kickstart
installation, the command in kickstart file

clearpart --initlabel

does not work. Even worse: if I just use GUI installer the drive is not
listed between available disks. If I switch in the same installer to some
virtual console

Ctrl + Alt + F2

I can see that the kernel installer run under definitely sees the drive:
/dev/sda is present.

Yum through a proxy

I have configured yum to use a proxy via the yum.conf file by adding:

proxy=http://myproxy.com:8080/

What I noticed when running yum check-up date is that some requests are
going through the proxy while the system seems to be trying to resolve the
domains of other hosts in the repo and trying to establish direct
connections to them instead of going through the proxy.

Can anyone explain this behavior?

fingerprint reader on C-7 ???

Hi all!

I just got a new (to me) used laptop (HP EliteBook 8530p) and find that
it has a fingerprint reader.

Wondering if it could be made to work for me (Centos-7) I did a lot
of googling (well, actually duck-duck-go-ing) and found a ton of hits
on either setting it up in Windoze, or others wondering if it can be
used in Linux.

inquiry about limitation of file system

I have a website with millions of pages. We often deploy our websites on centos with Nginx and Apache Http Server as HTTP Web Server. I am very worried about the performance of web server if the amount of pages is very very large. I wonder whether the performance will be affected if there are too many files and directories on the server. Besides, our bugdet is limited. We do not want to deploy too many Servers and use other file system such as GFS.

reading old dump backups from 2009

I have and old dump format backup done under fedora 7 which is stored on
disk and has an sha256sum file that indicates there are no data errors
in the backup file.  When I try to read the file with restore under

Input is from a local file/pipe

I have another copy of the backup on another disk with the same checksum
and it gets the same error as well.

Red Hat is Planning To Deprecate KDE on RHEL By 2024

That's still several years in the future, of course.

I use Mate on all of my machines rather than Gnome or KDE and I'm sure
many of you fine folks do the same.

But it's interesting nonetheless.

Point-release Freeze is Active

Hi Folks,

As is usual, we freeze the SIG Sign + Push process as part of preparing
for a point release.

This helps us once CR is ready (it isn't yet, though) so that we can
seed it quickly in CBS to build against.

The Point-release Freeze does not affect content moving from the testing
tags in CBS to buildlogs.c.o, that will continue to show up as it is
built.

SIGs: Possibility to drop EOL content at 7.6.1810 release time

I'll just cut&paste the previous email with some modifications. You know
the drill.

RHEL 7.6 was released a few days ago and building CentOS 7.6.1810 has
just started. This would be an excellent time to remove any EOL software
you may have floating around on mirror.centos.org.

python-jwt in RHEL's addons and CentOS

Red Hat recently shipped python-jwt in
<a href="http://access.redhat.com/errata/RHEA-2018:1032" title="http://access.redhat.com/errata/RHEA-2018:1032">http://access.redhat.com/errata/RHEA-2018:1032</a>

This went into the "High Availability" and "Resilient Storage" add-ons
of RHEL, not the usual RHEL Base/Optional/Extras.

I was wondering why CentOS has this package in its base repositories
now. Does CentOS 7 include RHEL's HA addon or the Resilient Storage
addon?

Would RHEL, CentOS, and Fedora Remain Open Source/Free Software After IBM Buys Red Hat for $34 Billion?

Good morning from Singapore,

This is of paramount importance. Would Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), CentOS, and Fedora remain open source/free software after IBM buys Red Hat for $34 Billion?

RHEL 7.6 released

<a href="https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/7/html-single/7.6_release_notes/" title="https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/7/html-single/7.6_release_notes/">https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/7...</a>

They silently rebased GNOME to 3.28, which wasn't in the 7.6 beta nor in
the release notes. Can't wait to see it on my desktop. Too bad we still
have to wait for 3.29, which has more fixes for the huge memory leak of
gnome-shell.

multistage booting and grubby

Hi,

We are working with a system configure to boot using tboot

Using grub2 and multiboot2, we have grub2 booting tboot and then booting centos.

Grub2 fully supports this scenario and it works fine.

The problem we have is that some centos packages use grubby to modify the boot configuration / boot parameters. Grubby does not appear to have any support for this, and so all invocations of grubby end up doing nothing and fail silently.

Question is, would you know if there is any plan to add support for multiboot2 in an upcoming version of grubby?

Thanks,

Paul-Emile

RSB filling is enabled for CentOS 7 Kernel?

Hi All,

We ran the spectre meltdown checker tool provided by: <a href="https://github.com/speed47/spectre-meltdown-checker" title="https://github.com/speed47/spectre-meltdown-checker">https://github.com/speed47/spectre-meltdown-checker</a>.

And it says that we are still vulnerable to variant #2 since RSB filling is not enabled in our kernel

When we googled, the following bugzilla from RH suggests that it is enabled by default:

What is the preferred approach to get golang >= 1.9.4 in buildroots in the CBS?

Hi,

It seems that the golang version (1.8) in the CentOS build (base?)
repository is not recent enough to build one of the Gluster components.
GlusterD2-5.0 needs golang >= 1.9.4.

There is a build of golang-1.10.2-1.el7 in the CBS, but that is only for
x86_64, and I would need a version that has ppc64le and aarch64 as well.

Early on, golang was included in CentOS Extras, is that a possible
location to keep a more recent version?

Thanks,
Niels

I enable debug of systemd-udevd by changing guest's /etc/udev/udev.conf to this:
udev_log="debug"
and regenerate initramfs. Then, we can get more message about this issue.

Some warnings from SCL's MariaDB

Hi all,

I am seeing a lot of warnings with mariadb's server from yesterday:

InnoDB: page_cleaner: 1000ms intended loop took 10945ms. The settings might not be optimal.

According to mysql and mariadb docs, this problem is related to number of page cleaner threads. And it can only set innodb_page_cleaners as high as innodb_buffer_pool_instances. But on the basis of which options should I adjust these two parameters?

Regards,
C. L. Martinez
